How to Convert Nanoseconds to Milliseconds

Calendars document the days in a month

To convert a nanosecond measurement to a millisecond measurement, multiply the time by the conversion ratio. One nanosecond is equal to 1.0E-6 milliseconds, so use this simple formula to convert:

milliseconds = nanoseconds × 1.0E-6

The time in milliseconds is equal to the nanoseconds multiplied by 1.0E-6.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanoseconds to milliseconds using the formula above.
5 ns = (5 × 1.0E-6) = 5.0E-6 ms

Nanoseconds and milliseconds 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.

Milliseconds

The millisecond is a multiple of the second, which is the SI base unit for time. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Milliseconds can be abbreviated as ms, for example 1 millisecond can be written as 1 ms.
