ns to GHz Converter

This tool calculates Gigahertz value from nanosecond.

Enter the value in ns and the tool will provide the equivalent value in GHz.

🔁 GHz to ns


F (GHz) = 1/T (ns)

Example Calculation

  • 1 ns converts to 1 GHz
  • 1000 ns converts to 0.001 GHz


A nanosecond (ns) is a unit of time that equals one billionth of a second. The term comes from the prefix “nano,” which is derived from the Greek word “nanos,” meaning “dwarf.” In scientific notation, a nanosecond is represented as 1 ns or 10-9 seconds. This incredibly short span of time is commonly used in electronics, telecommunications, and physics to measure time intervals for high-speed processes, such as the time it takes for signals to travel in computer circuits or for light to travel short distances.

GHz stands for gigahertz, which is a unit of frequency equal to one billion hertz (Hz). It’s used to measure the frequency of electromagnetic waves, including those in radio, microwave, and visible light spectrums. In practical terms, one gigahertz represents one billion cycles per second. This unit is particularly significant in the context of computer processors, telecommunications, and various forms of wireless communication. For example, the clock speed of modern CPUs is often measured in gigahertz, indicating how many billions of operations the processor can perform per second.
