To help compare orders of magnitude of different times this page lists times between 10−9 seconds and 10−8 seconds (1 nanosecond and 10 nanoseconds) See also times of other orders of magnitude. A nanosecond is one billionth of a second (10−9). An order of magnitude is the class of scale or magnitude of any amount, where each class contains values of a fixed ratio to the class preceding it. ... Look up second in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ... The pages linked in the right-hand column contain lists of times that are of the same order of magnitude (power of ten). ...

  • shorter times
  • 1 nanosecond
  • 1.0 ns -- cycle time for frequency 1 GHz, radio wavelength 0.3 m
  • 1.02 ns (approx.) -- time taken for light to travel 1 foot
  • 3.33564095 ns (approx.) -- time taken for light to travel 1 metre
  • 10 nanoseconds
  • longer times

10 nanoseconds is sometimes referred to as a shake - as in a "shake of a lamb's tail". To help compare orders of magnitude of different times, this page lists times between 10-10 seconds and 10-9 seconds (100 picosecond and 1 nanosecond) See also times of other orders of magnitude. ... (Redirected from 1 E9 Hz) To help compare orders of magnitude of different times, this page lists times between 10-10 seconds and 10-9 seconds (100 picosecond and 1 nanosecond) See also times of other orders of magnitude. ...

Prism splitting light Light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength that is visible to the eye (visible light) or, in a technical or scientific context, electromagnetic radiation of any wavelength. ... A foot (plural: feet) is any of several old units of distance or length, measuring around a quarter to a third of a meter. ... Prism splitting light Light is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength that is visible to the eye (visible light) or, in a technical or scientific context, electromagnetic radiation of any wavelength. ... metre or meter, see meter (disambiguation) The metre (in the U.S., chiefly meter) is a measure of length, approximately equal to 3. ... To help compare orders of magnitude of different times this page lists times between 10−8 seconds and 10−7 seconds (10 to 100 nanoseconds). ... A shake is an informal unit of time equal to 10 nanoseconds, or 10-8 seconds. ...

Microwave Rules of Thumb - Microwave Encyclopedia - Microwaves101.com (2683 words)
Electromagnetic energy such as microwave radiation travels one foot in one nanosecond in free space.
The 10% to 90% rise time of a pulsed signal, in nanoseconds, will be approximately equal to 0.35 divided by the bandwidth of the network, in GHz.
If you are trying to effect an RF short circuit using a quarter-wave stub, use a low impedance line, or better still, use a radial stub.
Computer storage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2615 words)
The time taken to access a given byte of information stored on a hard disk is typically a few thousandths of a second, or milliseconds.
By contrast, the time taken to access a given byte of information stored in random access memory is measured in thousand-millionths of a second, or nanoseconds.
The relevant unit of measurement is typically nanosecond for primary storage, millisecond for secondary storage, and second for tertiary storage.
