How to Convert Microseconds to Nanoseconds

To convert a measurement in microseconds to a measurement in nanoseconds, multiply the time by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 nanoseconds/microsecond.

Since one microsecond is equal to 1,000 nanoseconds, you can use this simple formula to convert:

nanoseconds = microseconds × 1,000

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

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

How Many Nanoseconds Are in a Microsecond?

There are 1,000 nanoseconds in a microsecond, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 µs = 1,000 ns

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

What Is a Microsecond?

One microsecond is equal to 1/1,000 of a millisecond or 1,000 nanoseconds.

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 millionths, or 10-6. Microseconds can be abbreviated as µs; for example, 1 microsecond can be written as 1 µs.

What Is a Nanosecond?

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

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.
