ok i've created a diagram, it's basically identical to the current
PCB3 schematic, except LTC4155 is replaced by a combination of bq24193
plus txs0104 plus 1.8v regulator, and STC3115 is replace by BQ34Z100.
key differences from what you *might* be expecting this Charger PCB to have:
1) there is NO 5V rail.
2) there is NO 12V rail
3 ) there is NO 3.3v rail
4) the (appx) 4.2V "SYS" voltage from the Charger IC goes straight out *as-is*
5) Digital GPIO requires a REF voltage to be safe and meaningful.
this *has* to be EXTERNALLY SUPPLIED.
6) many devices are now USB-OTG compliant (2-way power),
so that is a power output (***AND POWER INPUT***)
from what you wrote, you *may* have considered that something like
this would be useful:
1) 5V DC output
2) 12V DC output
3) 3.3v output
4) DC charging input
such a board is not useful for this project, because such a design is
for a standard laptop. this isn't a standard laptop, it's a
USB-OTG-powered "embedded" device.
