We consider spiking neural P systems as devices which can be used to per-
form some basic arithmetic operations, namely addition, subtraction, comparison and
multiplication by a fixed factor. The input to these systems are natural numbers ex-
pressed in binary form, encoded as appropriate sequences of spikes. A single system
accepts as inputs numbers of any size. The present work may be considered as a first
step towards the design of a CPU based on the working of spiking neural P systems.
