What is nanosecond?


The nanosecond is a unit of time in the metric system equal to one billionth of a second (1 ns = 10-9 s), the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI). It is also equal to 109 attoseconds (as), or 1,000 picoseconds (ps), or 0.001 microseconds (μs) or 10-6 milliseconds (ms), which are SI units of time.

Times of this magnitude (i.e., on the nanosecond time scale) are commonly used in telecommunications, pulsed lasers, and electronics.
