    1p = 10^-12
    1n = 10^-9
    1μ = 10^-6

    for example, 1μs is one-millionth of a second = 1000ns

    1ns = 1000ps

    1ps = one-millionth of 1μs

    The first table is wrong!! Pico and micro values are the same.

    Yup, good catch. I never use those as it's much easier to remember 10^-12 rather than 0.000000000001....

    But, the conversion units aren't specified. It could be 0.000001 micro-...;)

    What am I missing?:confused:

    milli,micro,nano,pico,femto,atto is the way I remember

    Only uf and uuf was used in my day:)

    Oh, I see! I was looking at the notation only. Whew...............................................

    before pico farad became popular, micro micro was used. you might still see it on some older schematics or caps.

    And if the conversion units aren't specified, I think we can say it's an error, too. :p

    Anyway, It's not important.
