And how on Earth can a brand-new evaluation board use EoL components? This is beyond me...
AKM does not seem to do a very professional job like AD, TI, Cirrus, etc. Their documentation is relatively poor in comparison. I am sure it has something to do with the size of the company as well. I've noticed they have a strong made-in-Japan preference where you will see them select parts from Japanese vendors unless they absolutely can't. Panasonic makes good parts, but I'm not sure they have the same commitment to lifespan that some of their competitors do.
I don't really understand the point of it, but these are close matches at Digikey:
It's probably there for reverse voltage protection and can be omitted.
