Abstract: We are doing astrometric pulsar VLBI observation with Kashima-Kalyazin 7000 km baseline. K4 correlator is under the development for this observation program. When XF type correlator is used for pulsar processing with gating, attention should be paid to avoid fluctuation on delay result due to fractional bit effect. This influence is serious around the point that bit shift for delay tracking and pulsar period is synchronized. In this paper, the K4 correlation system is introduced and fractional bit effect on pulsar processing is explained.
