    Does anyone knows which companies produces buck boost converter IC with DIP packages? I've searched for certain companies such as Microchip, Texas Instruments and Linear Tech but they do not provide such IC with DIP packages.

    There are plenty.. simply hit up digikey.com or similar and use their search

    here is one..
    TI MC34063AP

    They are not that common, but you can find some. I also support the suggestion to serach some of the major components vendors like digikey and filter by package.
    Here is some MC33063AP1G,MC34063AP1G,LT1072CN8#PBF, and LT1082CN8#PBF

    There are two different uses of the term "buck-boost". The first applies to parts like the MC34063. You can run it in a buck configuration and trick it into generating a negative voltage. The datasheet has an example for turning +5V into -12V. The regulator thinks it is turning +17V into +12V, a buck circuit. But 12 is greater than 5 (not counting polarities), a boost circuit. This is an old trick, and old parts still are available in DIP.

    The other use of the term is for a regulator that shifts from a true buck config to a true boost config seamlessly as the input changes. For example, making a constant +5V out as the input changes from +6V to +3V, a common problem for battery powered systems. The chips for this are newer, and many are not available in DIP.

    So, which is the one you want?
