What is microsecond?

Definition:

The microsecond is a unit of time in the metric system equal to one millionth of a second (1 μs = 10-6 s), the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI). It is also equal to 109 femtoseconds (fs), or 106 picoseconds (ps), or 1,000 nanoseconds (ns) or 0.001 milliseconds (ms), which are SI units of time.

Times of this magnitude (i.e., on the microsecond time scale) are used in electronics.
