I put them in the antistatic (pink) bags to stop them tribocharging, i.e., building up a charge due to friction on the way. And then in EM sheilded (silver) bags, so they are not affected by EM fields etc. Just leave them in the bags until they are being used, and if you don't have an anti-static mat, touch your grounded computer case before you handle them. They are not particularly sensitive to static or EM fields, but I pack them like this just in case, so there is no chance of them being wrecked by static. But watch in particular, the 74HCXXXX chips for the x0xb0x, they can be very sensitive to static.
thanks for the info. I've been curious about how much these parts might be affected by static and now I know and which things in particular to watch for.
How about if I took the parts out of the EM shielded bag to inspect them in this proximity to a crt monitor?
