It's the PeopleEditor control. Here's the good article about it. It's about 2007 version but there's no changes in 2010.


To add the normal people picker to a web part you can use

Microsoft.SharePoint.UserControls.PeopleEditor or

<SharePoint:PeopleEditor ID="myPeoplePicker" runat="server" Width="300" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderColor="Black" BorderWidth="1" />

Check out the below link, it has complete code:
