    Can silicon junctions be harmed with magnetism

    Would analog or digital ICs which aren't attached to a PCB pulled out of their original tape or tube packaging be effected or harmed from few rapid pulses of ~8kG from an air cross over inductor coil?

    Silicon in chips are semiconductors and back emf can be induced straight onto the junction however most chips can handle 2kv of ESD without issue - but the ESD is conducted thru the leads wereas magnetism would induce back emf through onto any conductive materials.
