The two most important steps in designing a circuit board are designing the circuit and layout out the traces. Each step is performed in a different program of the software suite.

Yesterday, the circuit was drawn in the schematic view of KiCad. Today, the component footprints were selected and arranged in a rectangle. Two different arrangements were tried to find the easiest to map. The goal was to make a single-sided board so inexpensive copper-clad boards could be purchased. Later revisions of the tagger may use manufactured circuit boards ordered from a fabrication facility.
