Details In the field of time, the unit microsecond (µs) is a unit of measurement used to quantify time intervals. One microsecond is equivalent to one-millionth (1/1,000,000) of a second or 10^-6 seconds. It represents a very small amount of time and is commonly used for measuring time intervals in high-speed systems, such as electronics, computer processing, and telecommunications, where extremely short durations of time need to be accounted for accurately.
