Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are widely used to implement special-purpose processors. FPGAs are cost effective and flexible for low volume applications because the users can freely change the function of the programmable logic blocks and the connection of the programmable switch blocks. This review paper presents a survey to show the work done on how power of FPGA is minimized by applying different techniques. Among these the self adaptive voltage controlling is most efficient technique which able to reduce power without affecting system performance. This review paper includes the study of 14 research papers on low power FPGA.
