1. A method for performing uplink (UL) transmission control of an electronic device, the method comprising the steps of:

  • determining a set of UL transmission patterns for a dedicated physical data channel (DPDCH) and a dedicated physical control channel (DPCCH), wherein one of the set of UL transmission patterns indicates whether UL transmission of a plurality of slots of one of the DPDCH and the DPCCH in at least one transmission time interval (TTI) is required, respectively; and

    performing UL transmission of the DPDCH and the DPCCH according to the set of UL transmission patterns, wherein with aid of a UL transmission pattern for the DPDCH within the set of UL transmission patterns, UL transmission of at least one slot of the DPDCH is prevented in the at least one TTI;

    wherein the step of determining the set of UL transmission patterns for the DPDCH and the DPCCH further comprises;

    based on at least one predetermined rule, determining a UL transmission pattern for the DPCCH within the set of UL transmission patterns according to at least one characteristic of the DPDCH, to prevent at least one pilot of at least one slot of the DPCCH from being transmitted in the at least one TTI;

    wherein the step of determining the UL transmission pattern for the DPCCH according to the at least one characteristic of the DPDCH further comprises;

    based on the at least one predetermined rule, when it is detected that no UL transmission of a specific slot of the DPDCH in the at least one TTI is required, determining whether UL transmission of any of a Transport Format Combination Indicator (TFCI) field and a Transmit Power Control (TPC) field within a corresponding slot of the DPCCH in the at least one TTI is required, to determine the UL transmission pattern for the DPCCH to selectively prevent UL transmission of the corresponding slot of the DPCCH in the at least one TTI according to at least one characteristic of the DPCCH, wherein whether UL transmission of the corresponding slot of the DPCCH in the at least one TTI is allowed corresponds to whether the UL transmission of the any of the TFCI field and the TPC field within the corresponding slot of the DPCCH in the at least one TTI is required.
