Hello Alejandro

You can find the information on the original Serial Pi in our knowledge base at https://www.abelectronics.co.uk/kb/article/1045/serial-pi

The Serial Pi is compatible with the newer Raspberry Pi models.  The main difference between the original Serial Pi and the newer models is the change to a 40 pin GPIO connector and the PCB was changed to the newer hat specifications.  

If you want to the the Serial Pi on a Raspberry Pi 3, 3+ or Zero W you will need to go through our tutorial to remap the UART port as by default it is used for the bluetooth device.
