We are MFI developer currently working on AirPlay product. We are desperately trying to get a BCM9WCD1AUDIO_3 evaluation board to test out Broadcom chip with AirPlay audio. However the board is not immediately available for purchase (8 week lead time).
If there are anyone who has the board to spare, please contact me and I'd like to buy from you.
Tell Beacon that the people on the Broadcom forums told you that thye may need to work this through the PLM (Product Manager, they will know who this is) as I am not sure Avnet is setup via the distribution pricebook to sell these boards. The Rep (Beacon) has local contacts at Avnet/Broadcom they can call and confirm this with as well.
