Nanosecond Conversion Calculator

Enter a value in nanoseconds below to convert to another unit of time.

What Is a Nanosecond?

A nanosecond is a unit used to measure time.

The nanosecond is a multiple of the second, which is the SI base unit for time. In the metric system, "nano" is the prefix for billionths, or 10-9. Nanoseconds can be abbreviated as ns; for example, 1 nanosecond can be written as 1 ns.

How Much Is a Nanosecond?

One nanosecond is equal to 1/1,000,000,000 (one-billionth) of a second.

How to Convert Nanoseconds

To convert nanoseconds to another unit of time, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[1]

You can find the conversion factors for nanoseconds in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the time measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

nanoseconds × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
