Software development for cellular computing is growing up yielding new
applications. In this paper, we describe a simulator for the class of recognizer P systems
with active membranes, which exploits the massively parallel nature of the P systems
computations by using a massively parallel computer architecture, such as Compute
Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) from Nvidia, to obtain better performance in the
simulations. We illustrate it by giving a solution to the N-Queens problem as an example.
