1st no: there is no adapter
2nd no: DSI displays are currently not supported; only the official one can use DSI
Thats a shame.
is there a connector/breakout board for the connection on the screen?
O.K., the DSI firmware is closed source ... that might be a shame but hopefully changes soon (as some guys are working on this).
But why should it be a shame that no breakout board for a random display is available? In a DIY world you can design it yourself.
Anyhow, your display uses MIPI interface, and because MIPI is a high speed interface a 'traditional breakout board' will not work most likely due to signal integrity issues (trace length, trace impedance, ... just to name a few).
So, even with a working DSI interface most users will not be able to fire their screen up, because you will need a dedicated adapter for it (and this might not be existent due to the vast diversity of displays).
