The Mainz Microtron (MAMI) is an electron accelerator at the Institute for Nuclear Physics in Mainz, that provides beam energies of up to 1.6 GeV. With its narrow beam profile, continous stream of particles and beam currents of up to 100 µA it can be used for multiple test beam applications. One of these is testing detectors at very high rates. Another one is using the possibility of MAMI to produce high energy, tagged photons to test the response to photons. Both tests have been conducted with HV-MAPS (High Voltage Monolithic Active Pixel Sensors), that are foreseen to be used in the Mu3e experiment at PSI and the P2 experiment in Mainz. In this talk the MAMI facility and recent results of MuPix testing at hit rates of up to 2 MHz are presented.
