That's Cortex-M4. Size and weight is really nice but just 1MB of ROM and 
192KiB of RAM is not enough to run GHCi. Perhaps you may attempt to try 
Hugs but I still think it's more prepared to be run on top of Linux/Unix 
than on RTOS -- at least yet.

For such devices really the only option for now is to compile haskell to 
bare metal which means Ajhc.

If you insist on GHCi, then search for Cortex-Ax which is able to run 
Linux and which fulfill your weight reqs. For example Gumstick or 
Variscite makes a lot of nice SOMs, perhaps some of them is applicable 
for your app?
