Hmm that's a PIC controller. It's a generic device, and what it does
depends on its programming. How is the board called that you are using ?

This board does some interfacing with some protocol and you have to check
whether LCDproc supports it. You can find out what wirings and drivers
etc are supported on the documentation page.
