About OS Watchdog Timers

About Berkshire Products, Inc.

Berkshire was founded in 1987 originally designing hardware for PCs and embedded applications. The first PC Watchdog timer product, the ISA PC Watchdog, was introduced in 1995. The product line expanded to include OS Watchdog timers for serial ports, USB & PCI buses. We have also designed and manufactured custom versions of the PC Watchdog boards tailored to customers' specific needs. Berkshire Products now sells internationally, with customers on every continent.
