The design uses two major chips. One handles the SPI to MAC/PHY translation for the ethernet jack. The other chip is a PIC24F, which hosts a simple web server and reads files stored on a microSD card. All components run at a low 3.3volts. Part of the compactness of the design comes from the PIC24F having programmable pins; only four jumper wires were needed. The single sided SMD design is easy to manufacture at home. Part 1 covered many of the 24F's features and both posts have full code available." Link to Original Source
