After looking at some of the example VIs, I see that it's possible to enable multiple PWM outputs (i.e. U6 4-PWM.vi), but is it  possible to output 2 different frequencies simultaneously - say 10Hz on FIO0, and 50Hz on FIO1?

The U6 only has 1 clock available for the timers, so all PWM16 outputs will be at the same frequency.  All PWM8 outputs will be at the same frequency, and that frequency will be 256x the PWM16 frequency.  With the Frequency Output mode you can adjust frequency somewhat using the timer value, but duty-cycle is fixed at 50% in that mode.


On the T7 you can use Clock1 & Clock2 to produce PWM at 2 different frequencies:
