Look into NCO or numerically controller oscillator. It's basically an integrator that overflows at some rate. The MSB of the integrator is the output & you can change the frequency by changing the integrator input.

Re: digital VCO

generally the NCO is implemented with LUT which contains the sin(cos) value. u use the output of integrator as the address. the frequency will be determined by the integrator step.

Yes a LUT is needed to generate sin/cos, but if just need a clock, then only the NCO is needed.
