Karl Guttag has over 34 years of experience in integrated circuit architecture related to Graphics and Image Processors Digital Signal Processing (DSP), and memory architecture. For the last 12 years he has worked on integrated circuit backplanes for Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS) displays. Over the last 34 years he has identified new market opportunities and integrated circuit architectures to serve those markets.
He is named inventor on over 142 issued U.S. Patents including key patents related graphics and imaging processors, graphics interface circuits, microprocessors, signal processing (DSP), Synchronous DRAMs, and Video Rams. Billions of dollars of yearly revenue have been attributed to products using these inventions. Mr. Guttag is the youngest person elected to The Fellow of Texas Instruments; he is a named inventor or co-inventor on over 142 US Patents.
◾Microdisplays particularly Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) on Silicon (LCOS)
◾Pico projector technology and applications
◾Digital Signal Processors (DSP)
◾Multimedia Processors and Multimedia Instruction Sets (SIMD Instructions)
Here is what Karl Guttag had to say about your MVIS but you already knew that lol
Microvision has done a remarkable job of survival. They are probably the epitome of what I call a “walking dead company,” a company that is able to raise enough money to stay alive but which never has a profitable product. Surviving on continually raising money is not the definition of success (except maybe for the people, particularly the executives, that keep getting a salary). Microvision has survived for over 21 years as a “startup” with the promise that next year will be the big year. They have plays “Lucy and Charlie Brown with the Football” for almost as long as Charles Schultz.
I suggest you go back and read my “Soothsayer Articles” from way back in 2011. In particular the first one here. Back in 2011, Microvision was trying to imply that they would have high volume production in 2012 when I said it was flatly not possible, their response was to label me a “Soothsayer”. Here we are 3 years later and where are they? While lasers have improved they are still far from being cost effective in high volume systems, the systems are bigger, are less power efficient, and the image quality is lousy compared to LCDs, LCOS, and DLP(R).
