Efficient method to conv. 230V AC to 30V AC only 5-10mA

Efficient method for converting 230V AC (Germany) to 30V AC with only 5-10mA needed?

Hello, :)

so far I use the good old "capacitor + resistor divider" method. It is easy to calculate that this mainly generates loss.
Therefore, I thought about winding my own transformer (first coil 3-4 turns, second 800+).
Before I go for that folly, I wanted to ask whether there might not be a better (integrated) solution. Is there any building block that could help me here?

Thanks for your help!

I think that you will find the integrated solution is a transformer...

There are methods that you allude to using resistor and capacitors. IIRC Microchip had some good application notes for this.

In this case, the voltage divider would piss about 87% down the drain. Are there no helpful integrated circuits as of yet?
