I'm new to digital design but I am trying to design a game.I need to control the output to a seven segment display using a mux. The outputs include various "letters" and numbers. How should I go about doing this? Thanks in advance!
Hi,why a mux? What are the constraints? Since you're posting this in an Altera forum, I assume you have an FPGA or a CPLD, which typically has plenty of I/O pins. Okay, a mux.

The interwebs are full of instructions; maybe not for your special case, but if you look into pages for Arduino etc., where a lack of sufficient I/O count is much more common, you'll find tons of articles, e.g.:
