How to Convert Microseconds to Nanoseconds

Calendars document the days in a month

To convert a microsecond measurement to a nanosecond measurement, multiply the time by the conversion ratio. One microsecond is equal to 1,000 nanoseconds, so use this simple formula to convert:

nanoseconds = microseconds × 1,000

The time in nanoseconds is equal to the microseconds multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 microseconds to nanoseconds using the formula above.
5 µs = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 ns

Microseconds and nanoseconds are both units used to measure time. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Microseconds

The microsecond is a multiple of the second, which is the SI base unit for time. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Microseconds can be abbreviated as µs, for example 1 microsecond can be written as 1 µs.

Nanoseconds

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 10-9. Nanoseconds can be abbreviated as ns, for example 1 nanosecond can be written as 1 ns.
