Ran across this in my travels....

It's a 10Mbps ethernet controller on a chip that communicates with other IC's using SPI. Pretty sure this would fit together nicely with a nerdkit

I guess this is needed as well, since the ethernet physical layer specifies some magnetics, this socket has them built in:

It'd be a fun experiment in either event.

In fact, if this works it would be a nice expansion kit/project. Think networked LED array.
