What USRP modules have hardware or analog gain control? 

Solution

The NI-USRP 2900 and NI-USRP 2901 both have analog gain controls on the frontend. The receive frontend has 76 dB of gain and the transmit frontend has 89.75 dB of gain. Although gain settings are typically application specific, it is recommended to use at least half of the available gain to achieve a suitable dynamic range.
