Spintronics is a new field of research exploiting the influence of electron spin on the electrical conduction (or current is spin dependent). The major problem is the realization and fabrication of spintronics based devices. To meet the objective scientific community is developing the novel kind of materials that relies on magnetism instead of flow of current through electron. This paper illustrates and reviews one of the emerging technologies known as spintronics by putting few low power computing techniques altogether based on spintronics to provide a basic and meaningful understanding to the reader. The challenges of spintronics devices that has to meet for the success of electronics future are summarized.
