Yes; all you need is a cable/baseboard with two pcie edge connector receptacles on it and you are in business. Implement a root complex on one of the zc706s and a pcie endpoint on the other. Of course you need a lot of software support but if you implement linux on both systems, you are 90% there.

Below is one example application note by using ML505 near to your requirement.

So I believe same kind of scheme may be implemented by using ZC706 board also. But I did not find any example application note  /reference designs for ZC706.

 

FYI: Below is some other useful reference related to PCIE through ZC706

Thanks for replying muzaffer.

But can you please clarify that why do I need a linux OS on both the boards and not only one the board which is acting as the root complex?

actually you are right; it's relatively easy to design a pcie endpoint system in bare-metal.

Can you suggest some cable which has both its ends for PCIe end connector?

Dear Abhi Goel,

 

I am also looking for similar application.

 

Are you planing to use Industrial PC with PCI Express Slot?

 

Please provide Hardware Configuration of your setup.

go for PCIEC series from Samtec.

The X4 would be PCIEC-064-xxx-EC-XX-XX, see catalog page and print in links below.
