|icoBoard||Lattice||iCE40-HX8K||7,680||$100||Sort of||A very simple FPGA development board that plugs into a Raspberry Pi, so you have a "backup" hard-core CPU that can control networking, etc. Supports a huge range of pmod accessories. You can write a program/circuit so that the Raspberry Pi CPU and the FPGA work together, similar to a SoC. Proprietary bitstream is fully reverse engineered and supported by Project IceStorm, and there is an open-source toolchain that can compile your hardware design to bitstream. Has everything you need to start experimenting with FPGAs.|

|snickerdoodle||Xilinx||Zynq 7010||28K||$95||Yes||Xilinx Zynq 7-Series SoC - ARM Cortex-A9 processor, and Artix-7 FPGA. 125 IO pins. 1GB DDR2 RAM. Texas Instruments WiLink 8 wireless module for 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. No LEDs or buttons, but easy to wire up your own on a breadboard. If you want to use a baseboard, you'll need a snickerdoodle black ($195) with the pins in the "down" orientation. (E.g. The "breakyBreaky breakout board" ($49) or piSmasher SBC ($195)). The snickerdoodle one only comes with pins in the "up" orientation and doesn't support any baseboards. But you can still plug the jumpers into the pins and wire up things on a breadboard.|

Note: I've changed my mind several times as I learned new things. Here's some of my previous thoughts.
Whereas most affordable FPGA development boards are designed with Xilinx 7 Series (Artix-7 and Kintex-7) chips from 2010, UltraMiner is built around the latest Kintex UltraScale+ FPGA, which is two generations newer. The high performance, low-power semiconductor process of the Xilinx UltraScale+ (TSMC 16 nm FinFET+) yields between 2 and 2.4 times the performance-per-Watt of the Kintex-7’s 28 ... fpgaminer / Open-Source-FPGA-Bitcoin-Miner forked from progranism/Open-Source-FPGA-Bitcoin-Miner.

Implement a bitcoin miner for the Virtex 7 device of your choice, being sure to take full advantage of the available resources. Tweak until you achieve the best maximum clock frequency you can. Then calculate the hashing rate using the clock frequency and number of parallel computation units. The beauty is that you can do all of this without having to purchase the chip first. 1 Kudo Share ... The proposed hardware architecture is implemented and verified on Virtex 7 field-programmable gate array (FPGA). To justify the work, the follwing parameters of the performance of the current study are determined: 1) the hash rate of the proposed Bitcoin mining system, 2) the maximum frequency, and 3) the throughput of the pipeline SHA256 core. Besides, the proposed core is implemeted in ROHM ... Bitcoins are uniquely generated by a process called Bitcoin mining where miners are rearward for computing power spent to support the network. In this work we discuss the process of Bitcoin mining and develop a new Bitcoin miner on an FPGA. 1. Introduction Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer electronic cash system which is sent directly from person to person without going through a financial institution ...
