Do you want to convert microseconds to nanoseconds?

## How to Convert Nanoseconds to Microseconds

To convert a measurement in nanoseconds to a measurement in microseconds, divide 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:

microseconds = nanoseconds ÷ 1,000

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

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

## 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.
