Nanosecond (ns) Conversions
A nanosecond (Symbol: ns) is an SI unit of time equal to one billionth of a second, or 10−9 seconds. The term combines the prefix nano- with the basic unit for one-sixtieth of a minute. Time units ranging between 10−8 and 10−7 seconds are typically expressed as tens or hundreds of nanoseconds.
