CD 4067 multiplexer + LCD

I plan to interface LCD with Arduino Uno. But due to the lack of IO pins, I wish to to connect this with Spark fun 16 Channel Analog/Digital multiplexer (IC used - CD4067).

I will connect the data and control lines of the LCD with multiplexer instead of directly with arduino board. Then I have to control the multiplexer board using Arduino program.

Is this the right way?

Suggestions please.

Hi,

No, this will not work. Do you have a 74hc595 chip? That would be suitable.

Alternatively, you can buy serial adaptor boards that solder to the back of the lcd and need only 1 or 2 wires to the Arduino (plus power and ground).
