Abstract: One of the simplest and most prevalent methods for displaying numerical digits uses a 7-segment formation to produce the decimal characters 0 through 9. A 12-segment display system to display English Alphabet characters has been proposed in this study. The 12-segment is arranged in such a way that these segments can characterize the entire English Alphabet and no curved segment is used in this display which made it more efficient and cost effective than previously 14-segment English Alphabet display system and others. There are at most 26 Alphabet patterns to be displayed in English language and 5 bits are used to represent each of them. For each pattern particular segments are activated.
