Absolute bare minimum FPGA thats breadboardable?

Yeah, I bought a few of those MachXO2 and MachXO3 boards when they were about $25, now price has skyrocketed for Lattice boards...

But as I said, if a small number of IOs is OK with you, the UPduino boards can definitely be considered here. Pretty cheap, and more than enough for learning purposes IMO.

I thought that the price quoted by Lattice for the MachXO2 board was quite high, so I just checked. I paid $26 in 2017 to Mouser for it. They're $90 now. Yikes.

I rarely bother with eval boards but I needed to verify that something would work before committing to a board, and for $26 it was a no-brainer.

I have used this FPGA in a project and it is quite straightforward to use.

And there is also a version with 4608 LUTs, and hardware Cortex-M3. Average price at Aliexpress is around $15 (without shipping).

P.S. And, if a perfoboard is fine too. QMTech sell bunch of "core boards" with (FPGA and RAM chip only) at a price of $40-$50 for variants with Cyclone IV (EP4CE15) or Zynq 7000 (XC7Z010).
