LCD display for Arduino

Hey guys,just a general question I got a lcd recently,something the same as this Just wondering is it only compatible with the Arduino or can it be used with an 8051 mirco?

The chip - a PCF8574 is a simple I2C port-expander. you can use it on every platform you could think of.

// Per.

So, do you have an Arduino?

If so, run the “guesser” sketch to determine the connections for the PCF8574 to the display (you may have to check out the libraries to interpret the numbers) if you actually intend to implement the I2C interface on another MCU.
