Unit nH
Name nanohenry
Category Inductance
Details In the field of inductance, a nanohenry (nH) is a unit of measurement that quantifies the inductive property of an electronic component, typically a wire coil or inductor. Inductance is the property of an electrical conductor that opposes the change in current flowing through it, causing energy storage in its magnetic field.

A nanohenry is equal to 10^-9 henries (10 to the power of -9 H), which means it is one-billionth of a henry. The henry (H) is the standard international unit (SI unit) for inductance. Nanohenries are commonly used for specifying smaller inductance values found in high-frequency circuits and compact inductors utilized in various electronic devices, like communication equipment, filters, and computer motherboards.
