Which routers won't assign IP addresses to other subnets?

I have a large network and I want to segment it with routers. What kind of routers do I use, so that my DHCP server does not assign IP addresses to other subnets?

Routers block all broadcasts, meaning that it will stop DHCP broadcasts too, and will assign DHCP to the hosts on local subnets. You can use Cisco routers.
