How to Convert Gigahertz to Cycles Per Second

To convert a gigahertz measurement to a cycle per second measurement, multiply the frequency by the conversion ratio.

Since one gigahertz is equal to 1,000,000,000 cycles per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

cycles per second = gigahertz × 1,000,000,000

The frequency in cycles per second is equal to the gigahertz multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 gigahertz to cycles per second using the formula above.
5 GHz = (5 × 1,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000 cps

How Many Cycles Per Second Are in a Gigahertz?

There are 1,000,000,000 cycles per second in a gigahertz, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 GHz = 1,000,000,000 cps

Gigahertz and cycles per second are both units used to measure frequency. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


Gigahertz is a measure of frequency equal to one billion cycles per second.

The gigahertz is a multiple of the hertz, which is the SI derived unit for frequency. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 109. Gigahertz can be abbreviated as GHz; for example, 1 gigahertz can be written as 1 GHz.

Cycles Per Second

Cycles per second are a measure of the number of oscillations, or cycles, that occur per second.

Cycles per second can be abbreviated as cps, and are also sometimes abbreviated as c/s or cycles/second. For example, 1 cycle per second can be written as 1 cps, 1 c/s, or 1 cycles/second.

Cycles per second can be expressed using the formula: cps = Cycles / Times
