ps to GHz Conversion Calculator

This tool calculates Gigahertz value from picosecond.

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

🔁 GHz to ps


F (GHz) = 1000/T (ps)

Example Calculation

  • 1 ps converts to 1000 GHz
  • 1000 ps converts to 1 GHz


What is a Picosecond?

A picosecond is a unit of time equal to one trillionth of a second, or 10−12 seconds. The prefix “pico-” denotes a factor of 10−12, making a picosecond an extremely short duration.

In practical terms, a picosecond is to one second as one second is to about 31.7 million years!

This incredibly brief time interval is used to measure events that happen on extremely fast timescales, such as the propagation of light pulses in optical fibers or the switching times of high-speed electronic circuits.

What is a Gigahertz?

A gigahertz is a unit of frequency equal to one billion cycles per second, or 109 hertz (Hz). The prefix “giga-” denotes a factor of 10^9.

Frequency, measured in hertz, indicates how many cycles of a periodic event occur in one second. In the context of gigahertz, this means billions of cycles per second.

Gigahertz is commonly used to describe the clock speeds of computer processors, the frequency of radio and television signals, and the transmission rates in high-speed communication networks.
