You can see ICA as a generalization of PCA where the constraint about 
axis orthogonality is released so it can better capture the statistics 
of multi-dimensional data. Standard ICA is designed to separate N 
sources from N sensors. If you only have 1 sensor, then you must use 
over-complete ICA. I suggest that you send a message to the ICA mailing 
list (icalist at inf.enst.fr) for more information about this technical issue.

Best,

Arno
