Convert Nanoseconds to Microseconds

Enter the time in nanoseconds below to get the value converted to microseconds.

Results in Microseconds: 1 ns = 0.001 µs

How to Convert Nanoseconds to Microseconds To convert a nanosecond measurement to a microsecond measurement, multiply the time by the conversion ratio. One nanosecond is equal to 0.001 microseconds, so use this simple formula to convert:

microseconds = nanoseconds × 0.001

The time in microseconds is equal to the nanoseconds multiplied by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanoseconds to microseconds using the formula above.
5 ns = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 µs

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

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.

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.
