You can do it with the Damped Track constraint:

Just for the fun of it, I decided to do this with a driver, instead of the much easier Damped Track:

Example created using driver

The Z rotation of the first bone is used to drive the Z location of the second bone. Here's the driver for the second bone:

driver for the Z location of the second bone.

There's no reason to prefer the Damped Track or the driver over the other in general, but sometimes other constraints will prevent you from selecting one, so it's good to know the other is available.
