1. A method for control of a Phased-Array Transformation (PhAT) circuit with a non-transient parameter store in which are antenna weight values which have stored during test, manufacturing, installation, tuning, or off-line maintenance, the method comprising: for a range of antenna beam directions,
receiving off a serial bus an Antenna Element Control Value which is an address in the non-transient parameter store where the antenna weight values to be used were previously stored;
retrieving the antenna weight value for each antenna element; and
transforming a signal transmitted from or a signal received by each antenna element.
