I recently got my hands on a MicroZed Evaluation Kit from Avnet that contains a Xilinx Zynq-7010  FPGA. To use the kit one needs to install the Xilinx tools, which in this case includes the Vivado design suite.  The webPACK version of the Vivado design suite is available for download on the Xilinx website ( Navigating to the Xilinx application download page, provides download installers for Windows and LINUX platforms, but not for OS X.

To install Vivado on a Mac or MacBook I suppose one should install the Windows version on a Windows binary emulator like WINE. Here is my experience of installing Vivado 2014.4 on LINUX, openSuse 13.1 (Bottle).
