Hi Nino,

I think the problem is simple.  Here is the syntax of the icbConfig
command:

#icbConfig(portName, module, ethernetAddress, icbAddress, moduleType)
#   portName to give to this asyn port
#   ethernetAddress - Ethernet address of module, low order 16 bits
#   icbAddress - rotary switch setting inside ICB module
#   moduleType
#      0 = ADC
#      1 = Amplifier
#      2 = HVPS
#      3 = TCA
#      4 = DSP

So your command should be  
icbConfig("icbTca1", 0x98c, 1, 3)
not
icbConfig("icbTca1", 0x98c, 1, 1)

Mark
