The onboard PCF I2C I/O expander is used by default to drive the LCD.
If you do not need to use the LCD or you want to use it in parallel configuration, you can use the on-board PCF 8574 as a general-purpose I/O expander.
All the I/O pins of the 8574 are available on the right side of the Protoshield Plus.
