We introduce a planar Hall effect magnetometer in the form of a parallel array of permalloy-based elliptical sensors. The number of ellipses in the array and other fabrication parameters are optimized with the support of numerical simulations. We obtain equivalent magnetic noise (EMN) of 16 pT/Hz at 100 Hz, 25 pT/Hz at 10 Hz, 98 pT/Hz at 1 Hz, and 470 pT/Hz at 0.1 Hz. The exceptional EMN without the use of magnetic flux concentrators highlights the advantages of the design. The presented magnetometer, characterized by its simplicity, affordability, and ability to operate at room temperature, is anticipated to be useful for applications requiring pT resolution.
