They started with an Arduino Mega 2560, and added:

  • a Wiznet ethernet controller
  • Power over Ethernet
  • a switching regulator
  • a micro SD card
  • a reset management chip
  • a crystal instead of a resonator
  • a gold plated PC board
  • a prototyping area
  • top and bottom nomenclature

They've also fixed the Wiznet chip's odd SPI behavior. They didn't have to change the board's footprint, either. The EtherMega is a great board, if you need top of the line. Not another knock-off, but a truly original product.
