VFD and 10937-040 question

Hi there, I have a few questions regarding VFDs and PN 10937-040 chip, I own a 16L101ss5 VFD & the 16lf01ua3. I want to control them with the Ardunio UNO (which I own), I am new to Ardunio and serial programming, I usually use PIC micros, the 16F series more specifically...been reading about I2C programming, is this the correct programming method I need to make these devices work?

ANY HELP WOULD BE AWESOME! ( been working day and night to figure these units out!)

Here are the Datasheets for the devices:




thanks! Joe :D
